CC’s Coffee House Licensee Owners Anthony and Nicole Marullo
2323 Canal Street across from the new Veterans Administration Hospital
Now open for business: a 1640-square-foot CCs store that offers the full-line of CCs coffees, teas and pastries; employs 18 young men and women and can serve up to 14 cars at an estimated three-minutes per order at peak times at its drive-through window. There are also 10 parking spaces for those who wish to linger longer, as well as an outdoor patio.
The new coffee shop cost approximately $750,000 to construct and will be a good neighbor for the United Medical Center, the Veterans Affairs Medical Complex, Warren Easton High School, and even the Catholic Convent in the area.
“In a city that invented the drive-through Daiquiri shop, it makes no sense that there were no drive-through coffee shops on this side of the river. We expect 70 percent of our business will come from the drive-through window,” said co-owner Nicole Marullo.
Anthony Marullo is the owner/operator of the French Market Restaurant at 1001 Decatur St. in the French Quarter. His wife will supervise the day-to-day operations of the CC’s facility. The pair is considering opening more CCs drive-through shops in Gentilly, east New Orleans and the Carrollton area and thanked Councilwoman LaToya Cantrell and the New Orleans City Council for making this opening possible.
